As of March 2017, someone has replaced the bolts and anchors on the south facing routes (thanks!), and the river is low enough to climb the pillar from the east base. BUT! There is a nesting pair of Canada Geese on the top of the pillar. They will take any attempt to attain the summit as disrespect.
